This coming holiday May 1st at 1.10 in the afternoon, join Phil Whelan, our Studio 1 audience, and the stunning Wells Cathedral School Jazz Combo, under the direction of Ed Leaker. Wells is one of the UK's top specialist music schools, and they've just completed week long Hong Kong tour, visiting most of our favourite local jazz venues. The highlight was a visit to RTHK last Sunday to perform and record in front of a great audience. Hear some classic 1950s and 60s "straight ahead" numbers, and compositions by members of this super talented 8 piece outfit. For this studio recording they were joined by world class Australian sax player Blaine Whittaker on Baritone. This was a really special event and we're so happy to be able to share it with you next Monday lunchtime at 1.10, here on Radio 3.

On Thursday's Backchat, we're asking the question: Should the area known as Civic Square outside the Central Government Offices be reopened to the public? The East Wing forecourt of the government complex in Admiralty was a popular demonstration site until it was fenced off in July 2014. It was then stormed by student activists two months later, triggering the 79-day Occupy protests. The incoming Chief Executive, Carrie Lam, has said she’ll consider opening it up again, amid calls to do so from across the political spectrum. But CY Leung says it won’t happen during his term of office, which ends on June 30. What do you think? Could reopening the square be an important gesture of reconciliation in a divided society? Or would such a step raise unacceptable security concerns? After 9.20: China launches its first home-built aircraft carrier.

The global rally in equities has spread to Asia for the third day this week, with stocks in Sydney, Tokyo and Hong Kong all putting in a strong performance in early trading. The rise is a follow-on from Wall Street where technology shares powered to new highs on anticipation of a big cut in U.S. corporate tax from the Trump Administration. However, Asian government bonds continued a global sell-off. Australian bonds fared the worst in the region after inflation picked up to move into the central bank’s target range. The first shots in a new trade war were fired by the U.S. when it imposed tariffs on Canadian lumber imports. U.S. commerce secretary Wilbur Ross says that trade actions in the aluminium, semiconductor and shipbuilding sectors are also being considered.
